New Golf Course, Event Space Approved in RPV

The development, which will be built in the Point View tract area, will also include an organic farm.

Plans for a new executive golf course, event space and organic farm on a 94-acre vacant piece of land overlooking the ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes were approved this month by the city's Planning Commission.

According to the Daily Breeze, developers hope to start work as early as this month on the project, which will occupy a piece of land known as the Point View tract.

The new development, known as Catalina View Estates, will include a 2.5-acre 9-hole golf course, an event garden, greenhouse and in the future, possible vineyards, the Daily Breeze reported.

Jim York, the project's developer, had his original plans for an "event garden" on the land shot down by the city in 2009 due to zoning laws and noise concerns from neighbors, Curbed L.A. reported.

However, Curbed L.A. added that because a golf course was added to this round of development plans, the project was approved because zoning laws allow for golf courses to also have ancillary support structures.

"I want to have fun with this property," York told the Daily Breeze.

Hopefully the golf course will be organic -- no pesticides, no herbicides, and no chemical fertilizers!

Great..... all we need is another golf course. There are plenty of golf courses. Why not keep the land wild??? Turn down the annaburg project to put in another golf course is absurd. Everyday this hill is disappearing.... Of course no one cares. Takes almost 30 mins to go 5 miles some days.... Get real people... LORD SAVE What little is left.

Land owners have a right to develop their land any way they want to . This is not public land. Jim York , the owner of this property, recently sold a large parcel of adjacent land to the Palos Verdes Land Conservancy providing a critical link to the other public land conservancy land. This development will provide a beautiful facility for weddings and other events so that people can enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Peninsula.

Environmentally this is a terrible idea. The last thing the hill needs is another "beautiful facility" for weddings and another golf course; there are several already, and many are tanking financially. Too bad Jim York didn't sell the whole parcel to the conservancy.

just sad--the death of nature to promote more financial gain on the hill.
